          What the hell is new with the new phone? A new camera and some sound crap. Terrible.

            The iPhone 6s and up are supported on the latest software, iOS 13. That’s a 6 year old phone, not 5.

            iOS 12 supported devices as old as the 5s, which was 7 generations old in respect to that software update.

                  While all these YouTubers will tell you, the peasant, that the new iPhone isn't worth getting, you can rest assured they'll have it for themselves. That's how it always works - the important people have the latest and greatest, meanwhile you're still using a 5s because you work at McDonalds and you're about to fired and replaced by an iPad.

                                      3:00 But a phone isn't dead once OS updates stop becoming available. New apps still suppor the older OS for years to come.

                                        Dying or not, from my point odd view its this "linus has steadily been building hardcore mining and or server hardware, thus YouTube had somewhat served its purpose to gain the funding for a bigger project and plan, that hes been editorial ans hinting st in his videos over time, If you've been paying attension, that is? Not to mention his affiliations, partnerships and ties with huge corporations. Factor that in and you will see what I see? One smart mofucker!"

                                            My iPhone 7plus appears to do all that the 11 does. I don’t get how people buy new phones when benefits are minimal. Quite foolish.

                                              I’m happy with my iPhone 8 Plus, not upgrading until it breaks, Feels good, I used to upgrade every time a new phone came out.

                                                    Hey Linus, do you think it is worth switching to Apple? Idk if you ever made a video about iOS vs Android or Windows/Linux vs macOS.
                                                    I am a CS student and tbh I always hated on Apple, b/c I thought they have the same specs as other laptops and sell it for 30% more. Is it as userfriendly as everybody always says or am I better off with a Windows or Linux OS.

                                                              I had my iPhone 5 for four years and it cost me £600 or £150 per year. I could have bought the 4s for £450 but I figured I'd only be able to keep that for 3 years until I needed to upgrade and that is the same £150 per year. It seemed logical to go for the iphone 5 and have the latest phone (at the time). Now of course the caveat is that it would delay my upgrade by 1 year. However, that would have coincided coincided with the launch of the iPhone 7 which I would have waited for father than getting the 6s after 3 years had I gone for the 4s.

                                                              Instead I went for the Samsung S7 EDGE as it was cheaper, (Apple put up UK prices 20% due to a weak £ whereas Samsung had not), had a larger OLED screen, was waterproof (I dropped my iPhone 3GS in a coffee at work and ruined it), plus had an SD sim card tray for up to 256GB. I now have an S10+ ceramic with 512GB that I paid £879 at a UK airport: The latest iPhone with 512GB is £1,400 or £1,500!

                                                              I noticed Apple put up the price of all Pro 11 phones £50 (in the UK) whereas there was no increase in the USA. Continuing weakness of the £ no doubt. 🙄😪
